Words cannot explain how wonderful this book is. I bought it to put on my coffee table and I don't have the coffee table yet. I just couldn't wait!!! There are dozens of inserts. Some of them are handwritten poems and letters he wrote throughout his life. Pictures of him and his family growing up. There are flyers of events he took part in, his correctional facilty ID card and even his grocery list. It's unbelievable how well this book was put together. A must have for any Tupac fan.

This book is so incredible!!!Just to turn the pages brings awe and goosebumps. The life and times of Tupac are captured in his words on CD and in his writings which are so eloquently reproduced that you feel you are holding the actual paper that he wrote upon. The personal memorabilia scattered throughout the book bring him alive. The man in all of his complexity and compassion is revealed. This is a book to treasure.

I bought this book for my son-in-law who is much interested in Tupac. When I opened it, I was amazed at how beautifully put together the book is. It has an innovative, creative format which combines story, photo, and the primary source materials of his life. I know this is probably a pretty academic review--but really, this is a creative, gorgeous, well- designed auto/biography. Excellent.

Alot of new material. Some never before (or anywhere else) facts in this book. The 1/1 scale copies of some of his poems, scripts, and Letters ect. were amazing to hold in your hand. It's not a boring read either, its put together well.

WOW, what a great book! This is a must-have book to add to your 2Pac collection, if you are a true die-hard fanatic, like me! The inserts and reproductions of Pac's handwritten poetry will give you chill bumps! This book shows all sides of the man most of us never got to know personally, unfortunately. He was a very compassionate, very caring and very intelligent young black man,,,and not just the hard-core thug rapper "persona" he portrayed. You will not regret purchasing this book.

If you love Pac like me, then you already own this book! This book was given to me as a gift and now I consider it one of my most prized possessions. The added photocopies of his personal hand written notes and personal items give you the impression that you have touched his life as he has touched ours. I love this book!!!

I happened to have bought this at the bookstore when it first came out, in fact its in a cover to protect it from all dust----that's how incredible this book is!!!!! Since his untimely passing, I have not been too happy with how Afeni has continued his legacy....the movie Resurrection was on point and this scrapbook is priceless! The inserts of copied original Tupac scripts,letters,plans,his written ideas,explanations,songs is amazing! I recommend anyone that listened to his music and followed his star to look at this book! Once you look at it, you will want your own copy! And it deserves more then 5 stars!

This book is incredible. The book is full of life with photos, documents, blueprints, and much more. Readers will be pleased with all of the detachable documents and things that somehow make you feel closer to Pac. My mom and I were in tears when we read on of the detachable court documents that a father wrote to a judge regarding Tupac's true character. He stated that his son was deathly ill and had one final wish that Tupac granted. What a tear jerker!! Read and enjoy. You will come away inspired and more in love with a man that helped change the way we perceived thugs and how we felt about hop-hop.
